Mendip Rotary Supports Red Cross Drivers

At one of its recent meetings, the Rotary club of Mendip presented a cheque to the British Red Cross Transport Support Service. Their volunteer drivers carry out the free door-to-door service for the Red Cross, taking cancer patients to receive treatment in Taunton and Bristol.

This little known service, unique to Somerset, organises a 70-strong team of volunteer drivers who collectively clock up around 500,000 miles each year supporting more than 1,000 Somerset-based cancer patients. The service has been running for fifteen years.

Club President Mike Hiles, who made the presentation, said, Some of our own members have benefited from this services in the past.
